What happened during Drums!?!
Listening to the second set the band is playing nicely up through Drums.
Then you get a Space> Wharf Rat> Around and Around Train Wreck. I didn’t bother listening to Shakedown
Was this the show where someone stole Jerry’s bindles of Persian?

Not feeling it
One of worst Shakedowns I've heard. Tepid too high praise.

Thru The Historic/Histrionic Prism
Before it became vogue to explode in glee because they "broke out" a song that they hadn't played in years, the blob of humans (some urbane others not) that would congregate at shows in 1979, had a working knowledge of what hadn't been played in awhile. For all intents and purposes, when they hit China Cat, this was a break out. As a New York Head you were hearing this live for this for time in years. I had no idea that they had arranged it where Bobby now screams his vocals, I just thought the band was charged up because the crowd was.

That's really the beauty of the recording. It actually puts perspective of being at the show. Soundboards are awesome, but seem much less personal. Give me a strong AUD or a Matrix everyday of the week.

a little noisy
crowd noise very overpowering on this. I blame it on the type of venue it is-huge a$$ impersonal. not surprised this show won't b a "go-to" for me

Would have kept this show, back in the day, if only for the Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance > Deal which was broadly interpreted (almost assuredly without any substantive truth) as a message from the band. The holy grail LSD set one ender! The set list written on the card in the cassette would have emphasized this significance.
The popular myth was that the L>S>D sequence signified use of same by the band for that show. We now know that to be far from the truth, but it was fun at the time.
Today, it is simply another nice show.

Nothing spectacular. Nice long, loping Sugaree typical of the era. This early Sailor/Saint is worth a listen; different lyrics and feel. Around & Around, besides being one of my least favourites, is played with a totally lack of energy - a shame they ended the set that way. Bobby was wrong: the band DID stop rockin'! Nice Shakedown to round things out, though.

Long live Bobby Wierd

Great show. It's cool to hear this early version of Lost/Saint--the lyrics in Saint of Circumstance are quite different from how it ended up. The music's pretty much the same, though they're still definitely feeling their way through that, too. An interesting opportunity to hear the evolution of such a great piece of music. The first Lost Sailor was just a month before this, not sure when they debuted Saint, or when they became essentially parts of the same song.

Nice show. Some sound issues. It's not as bad as Charlie thinks. He is no doubt a perfectionist.

My God.....What a beautiful mix!
Is it just me or is everyone fucking crtystal clear on this mix? A--fucking--men brother.

Mr. Charlie does it again
The Jack Straw opener is Jerry noodlin supreme.
The 14+ minute Sugaree is probably the BEST I have ever heard!
Shakedown encore=cherry on top!

Great 3 show run
Brent was now solidly implicated in the GD conspiracy and we all benefited!
If I recall correctly, this show took place right as we came back from summer break(I was just starting High School), so the morning after was the first day in a new school! I was still buzzing from god knows how many mikes the night before and couldnt have cared less! All I knew was all these kids were total saps for not being at MSG the night before. And we still had 2 nights coming!
